Jesus--Son of God, and Buddha--The Awakened One have decided to enjoy some time off together in the world of the mortals after safely greeting the Millennium. The two Holy Men share an apartment in the city of Tachikawa, in Tokyo, and are currently enjoying the lifestyles of mortals, and the beautiful seasons of Japan. The film depicts the holy roommates enjoying their day-in-the-life experiences in Tachikawa with the neighbors of the Hustle Shopping Arcade, their apartment manager Ms. Matsuda, and the local kids. The 'Saint-Young-Men's'' life here is definitely filled with joy and laughter. Written by Anonymous

Great concept, cute execution, average humour, poor animation
1 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

The Good: Conceptually, this movie is brilliant. It's high-concept storytelling at its most divine (pardon the pun). The movie's slice-of-life depiction of two of the most celebrated religious/cultural leaders makes for a fun experience.

The movie can feel offensive to those who easily get offended (one must remember - feeling 'offended' is a manifestation of one's own insecurities). If you watch this movie with an open mind, you'll have a good time.

The Bad: As is the case with most Japanese comedy (anime or otherwise), some jokes don't translate well into English. This is important to note since this movie is basically a light-hearted comedy.

The animation could've been better too - the movie has way too many still shots with background narration - at times it feels like less of a movie and more of a slideshow.
